Teen Tuesday: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. 336 p. Penguin Young Readers, January, 2012. 9780525478812.
Our Teen Tuesday recommendation comes courtesy of a student. She loved The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. John Green writes for a mostly high school audience. His books are engaging, feature smart characters and mature themes and occasionally language. In The Fault in Our Stars, Hazel Grace is forced by her well-meaning parents to attend a cancer support group. She meets Augustus there and the two fall in love. His cancer is in remission after his leg was amputated, Hazel is considered terminal, but a new, experimental drug is keeping her alive. You will need tissues for this one but you will also laugh through those tears.
